Batterby House is perfectly situated in Hudson,NY and is walkable to everything on Warren Street. Joe ( the owner ) is very friendly and so nice to talk to. His breakfast is AMAZING. The room is exactly as described and has the most comfortable mattress and bedding. We loved the turntable, record collection and the fun, well stocked snack annex. Nothing bad to say. Will be back :)!

Property's Favourite Review
My wife and I visited the Batterby House for our anniversary weekend. We were looking for a quick little get-away out of Manhattan. The Batterby House is a quick (7 minute) walk from the Hudson train station. We had a wonderful stay - the accommodations were thoughtful, comfortable and tasteful. Our room was spotlessly clean and wonderfully cool. It was a 90+ degrees the whole time we were there, and the near-silent A/C was an absolute god-send. We opted to stay in room 4 - which boasts a very comfortable bed-room and a HUGE bathroom, with a luxurious bathtub and shower. It was so nice to take a bath, I can't remember the last time I did that. I loved having the record player in our room, too, with a ton of great albums to choose from. Just down the hall from our room was a nice collection of movies to watch, and a complimentary snack bar. A great touch! Since it was so hot, we ended up staying in and watching TV one night, we raided the snacks many times. The common / dining areas are cozy and stylish. Hudson has some great restaurants, but I think the (huge) breakfasts Joe and Courtney prepared for us at Batterby House were some of the best meals we had all weekend. This is way beyond your typical B+B fare. Joe and Courtney, the hosts, were awesome. Super friendly and helpful, Joe even gave us a lift to the train station on our way home since it was supposed to rain. They had some great recommendations for our time there and went out of the way to make our stay fantastic. They also have a shop in town that has a ton of interesting and fun luxury items to check out. Don't miss it. All in all, the Batterby House was definitely the highlight of our trip, and we can't wait to go back.

We had a great and rejuvenating two-night stay at Batterby House. With seemingly half of Hudson closed, due to the holidays and the pandemic, we really appreciated the thought and care that Joe and Courtney have put into their home. We did a bit of shopping and sightseeing, but also would have been happy just to stay in for the week. The room was cozy with a turntable and well-curated record crate (in particular enjoyed: Lightnin' Hopkins, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Miles Davis x John Coltrane, Nas, and The Mountain Goats) and spacious bathtub; the movie library was first-rate, featuring a load of Criterion and indie (as well as recent) selections; and the breakfast and Courtney's baked goods were especially hearty and comforting. Joe is a welcoming, responsive host and quickly helped us figure out what to do in Hudson. He very kindly set the table for our takeout dinner one evening; the next evening we ordered a very nice bottle of wine for our room. Batterby House feels like an extension of its owners and their taste. I highly recommend staying here, especially if you enjoy films, music, or breakfast.

My partner and I stayed at the Batterby House on the last night of our anniversary trip to NYC. You instantly feel at home and welcomed into their beautiful space. We stayed in room #2 which has a lovely bathtub and is conveniently beside the well-stocked snack table and movie library! Joe was great to chat with and had lots of recommendations for local restaurants and places to check out. Batterby House is so well located and easy to walk around Hudson and enjoy the shops. In the morning you get to have an amazingly fresh, plentiful breakfast which all of the other guests were in unison in saying how delicious it was. All in all, it's a truly wonderful and relaxing place to stay - my only complaint is that we were only there for one night!

We stayed at Battersby for 2 nights in Nov 2021. Our hosts were excellent and their breakfasts were AMAZING. Restaurant quality, hearty servings and beautiful presentation of french toast and granola and pancakes and more. Breakfast was one of the best meals we had in town! Lovely rooms with impeccable taste and decor. Beds were comfortable and the little snack table was fun to try out. Thank you so much for the wonderful stay.
